The American Muslim leader charged with smuggling $340,000 out of Libya was suspected of funneling cash from Osama bin Laden to blind Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman in the failed 1993 attempt to blow up New York City landmarks, The Post has learned.

Best case scenario the Feds were tracking him all along. Watching to see who he had contacts with. Who else are the bad actors.

To the media types who browse FR:

By not covering this story in greater detail than the 24/7 coverage of the Scoot Peterson/Kobe Bryant fiasco, you are willfully destroying your childrens' and grandchildrens' futures. By failing to follow the money trails of this man to whom ever and to everyone it leads, you have failed in your life's work as a professional journalist. You can not be redeemed by good works in the future, because the enemy is within the gates, have breeached the inner sanctum of the White House by buying influence of the First Lady, infiltrated the Armed Forces that are to protect you from the enemy who is suicidal in it's drive to subjugate your children, and is actively supporting bought and paid for politicians running for the highest office in the land.

Run with this story, give this betrayal of your country all the energy and commitment you can muster, for if you don't you, the press of the Western world, will be cursed to the last historical chronicler of the Western civilized world falls to the Islamist terror that they intend to sweep across the New World. Constantinople took generations to fall, you have the written history to prove it. You can chronicle this betrayal, and poison the root before it takes hold of your system of political freedoms and turns your great-grandchildren in to Dhimmi.

Wait a second! Where are they getting "wealthy Saudi scion..."

Yesterday, reports in the Nat'l Post and Wash Times said he was an Ethiopian-born American.

Maybe the NYPost is confusing Alamoudi with the Saudi SAAR brothers...

This story is not getting through the media frenzy created by the Wilson-Novak 'scandal'...... not sure it would be properly covered if it were the only game in town.

Bill O'Reilly had a segment that pictured al Amoudi, mentioned his arrest and went straight to Daniel Pipes to talk about the chaplain, two translators at Gitmo and militant Islam. Al Amoudi wasn't mentioned again.

Go read Pipes' Weblog -- left side, second item down -- he's already read the entire affidavit on Alamoudie and picked out a few details to highlight.

I agree, this is not yet getting the coverage it deserves. But there are a lot of convoluted things emerging all at once.

I believe this article is in error describing Alamoudi as a Saudi. The Saudi Brothers who founded SAAR are the wealthy scions...

At least all the reports agree that the guy is in custody, no matter how his name is spelled.

On Aug. 11, Amoudi was stopped in England at Heathrow Airport with 34 bundles of sequentially numbered $100 bills in his suitcase as he prepared to fly to Syria.

He said he received the money from Libyan officials to try to win release of Libyan assets frozen after the 1988 Pan Am bombing.

He was paying for something........what I don't know.....but I'll bet there is an operation in the works.

Al Arian (the dude who was just arrested) and Al Alwani are connected at the hip. Al-Awani's attorney is Nancy Luque.

She is/was also the attorney for Maria Hsia (Ron Brown's aid), HUGH RODHAM, and a whole bunch of Clinton scandal people. She's worth looking at and also watching to see if she has any role in any of these captures.

Thanks for your additional input, seamole.

Investigators tried to prove Amoudi was a terror middleman but could not find "smoking gun" evidence.

That allowed Amoudi to became a politically connected Muslim activist and co-founder of the American Muslim Armed Forces and Veteran Affairs Council, which helps the U.S. military select Muslim chaplains.

Now we know. We won't have to wait decades for someone to investigate and write "Treason 2".

 Thanks, Tonkin!

Convenient isn't it?

Thanks for the Daniel Pipes info. Didn't know he had a blog and have picked up only from the Middle East Forum. Interesting that he has his doubts about coverage of this, too. Interesting thing in looking for his blog address...Daniel Pipes + weblog on Google gets you a bunch of Edward Said material and derrogatory info on Pipes.
Pipes Blog address (and I had to look for it :)):
http://www.danielpipes.org/

You are correct in stating al Amoudi is NOT Saudi. He is a U.S. national of Yemeni origin. Collecting info on him is proving interesting. Found this Arab News release on his arrest:

I think so too! In fact, yesterday I asked the question, what are the 'rats and media trying to bury in the news? Looks like this could be it, or perhaps at least one of the reasons.

And isn't it interesting that she's the only dem that's been quiet!

You refer to al-Arian....Sami al-Arian is our infamous Tampa terrorist computer engineering professor that our University of South Florida president, Judy Genshaft, had the guts to fire. He was arrested and is still being held. Al-Arian is associated with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. I have lost track of who al-Awani is. Too many Al whatevers........Al Gore..:)

The people you mention in connection to Nancy Luque are VERY interesting. Should be fun looking around.

Oh my gosh, seamole, EXACTLY RIGHT!Osama Bin Laden Money Paid For Anti-War Marches, Hillary Clinton, Cynthia McKinney campaigns

Bin Laden pays the American Muslim Council.

American Muslim Council co-sponsors march on Washington.

AMC gives money to McKinney on 9/11/2001, Hillary! campaign for Senate in 2000.

Bin Laden pays AMC to pay Blind Sheikh Rahman, whose lawyers were ANSWER founder Ramsey Clark and Lynne Stewart.

Good question; all I've seen on TV is a blurry frame of Alamoudi from a poor quality film of the infamous Pali rally in DC in 2000.

Steven Emerson credits the film to "a videotape by an individual participating in the rally."

The media obviously wasn't interested, and Alamoudi, for all his influence, seems to be camera-shy. Interesting.

I'm in this camp too. It will be interesting to see how rapidly the Wilson-wife outing scandal dies down, once this Al-Amoudi thing is old news.

Isn't this the guy who gave $50K to hitlery's senate campaign? She can't have that blasted all over the headlines.

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet (skimmed it), but when Hillary was confronted with this contribution, she lied and said she thought it was a contribution from the American Museum Council. She had a hard time explaining her picture with one of the Arab's she was meeting with.

Not only did Alamoudi contribute to Clinton...he also worked for the Clinton State Dept. as a speaker..

Take Alamoudi. The State Department chose him as a speaker and sent him abroad after Alamoudi donated money to the campaign of President Bill Clinton. Critics said he was kept as a speaker even when he was found to have been linked to Hamas, on the State Department list of terrorist organizations. Alamoudi said he opposes all sorts of terrorism.

In the end, Alamoudi's contributions were returned as officials scrambled for an explanation. "In evaluating this person or any person as a potential speaker," Boucher said last week, "we would look at the views that they had expressed and decide whether, in light of those views, we felt the person could be an honest discussant of the situation in the United States and, to the extent necessary, U.S. policy."

More:

The suspected bin Laden bag man was hired by the Clinton State Department a year after President Clinton turned down an offer from the government of Sudan for the al Qaeda chief's arrest and extradition to America.

Alamoudi remained on the State Department payroll right up through the 2000 election, a period during which President Clinton reportedly declined at least two additional offers to have bin Laden taken into custody.

Geez...look who else's name popped up...

Bonior is seeking funds from all communities, traveling across the country to try and come up with a respectable counter to the effort to unseat him. Recently, in Falls Church, Virginia, a group invited to a fund-raiser for Bonior’s campaign by Abdul Rahman Alamoudi of the American Muslim Foundation raised a significant amount in one evening. Similar efforts are going forward elsewhere.

David Bonior was a real rat. While the war on terror was just starting, he was objecting to everything being proposed. And this was based purely on political motives: Michigan has (one of) the largest population(s) of Arab/Iraqi citzens outside of the Mid-East...and as such, he completely put his interests ahead of the security of this country. This is again, turning out to be another case in which the Democrats support (and vice-versa) the enemies of this country, ala Carter/Soviets and Clinton/Chinese/N. Korea.
